Accomplishments in lockdown
Lockdown has been a life changing experience but has made us all accomplish something new
I started at the beginning of lockdown really thinking how was it possible to get better at anything? Well I never thought I’d write blogs or publish my work on here nor do as much art as I have. I never have been good at watercolours then I was always listening to the wrong people all my life even my health. I can’t run like I used to as I hammered it with eating disorders and negative beliefs over my weight and image. I got over it just never wanted to step back in a gym incase I restarted the cycle. It’s the same with my art I had horrible experiences that meant I couldn’t paint at all i got irritated by those telling me I’m either going to get something out of it or I’m not. Tired of been told not to quit I’d already given up. My whole world was crushed. First thing I did was speak to a fitness coach online and she inspired me to be strong and lean not weak and skinny. Weight lifting i once frowned upon is my new medicine. Then I had just bought new art materials and did different things not the old habits I had completely flipped it all around doing experiments and doing it my own way. It’s slowly starting to work it all will take more time and practice but I’ve learnt you need to give yourself as much time as you need to heal and not be hard on yourself as if it takes years it doesn’t matter. You can’t do anything in life without having any experience first. I feel coming out the lockdown we all would’ve learnt something new.
